Then, get a peek at impressive mansions before stopping at Halona Blowhole. Next, visit a variety of beaches, including the country’s top rated and most dangerous. See huge waves on the North Shore and look out for whales and giant green sea turtles in the right seasons. Stop for lunch at a local North Shore shrimp truck, where you sample a traditional plate lunch or poke (own expense). Then, explore Haleiwa, a laid-back surf town, and see some filming locations of famous movies. Finally, visit Dole pineapple plantation before returning to your hotel.
